  • Bruce, why do you have those young men in your house?

    http://www.cbssports.com/collegebask...see-ncaa-probe

    Bruce Pearl's admitted "mistakes" during an investigation into his men's basketball program include the Tennessee coach providing "incorrect and misleading information" to the NCAA about illegally hosting recruits at his home during the Fall of 2008, multiple sources have told CBSSports.com.

    Class of 2010 standout Aaron Craft is at the center of the investigation, according to sources. The point guard from Ohio committed to Tennessee in September 2008, i.e., at the beginning of his junior year.

    Sources told CBSSports.com that Craft -- along with fellow Class of 2010 prospect Josh Selby, who also was committed to Tennessee at the time, and perhaps another recruit -- visited Pearl's home during an unofficial visit to Tennessee later that same year, which is a violation of NCAA rules because high school juniors aren't allowed to engage college coaches away from campus. Pearl denied that Craft and Selby ever had been to his home when an NCAA investigator initially asked. The problem with that approach was that the NCAA, according to sources, already had in its possession a picture of Pearl and Craft that was snapped inside Pearl's home, which led to the line of questioning in the first place. It's unclear who took the picture or how the NCAA obtained it.
    Say what?

    From the LJWorld:

    "Selby and Craft would not be facing any NCAA punishment at their new schools for attending a function at Pearl’s house. The coach and UT program, however, could face discipline by the NCAA."

    Let's get this kid cleared already.

        Jim Rome (?!) just brought up an interesting point: Dez Bryant lied to NCAA investigators, and it cost him an entire year of eligibility. B.P. just got nailed doing the exact same thing. What will his punishment be?

          Looks like Adonis Thomas is straying a bit from his UT commit.

          How's a double dip from the Pearl pipeline sound?

              Pearl's getting suspended by the SEC, of all leagues to do such a thing.

                This is particularly funny coming from the SEC, especially because the media just came out with how much info they sat on regarding Cam Newton.
